Next stop...Hampi, India

Hampi, India

India continued...
Towards the end of my time spent in Goa I met Randal and luckily we we both had some time to travel inland to Hampi in the center of India.
We managed to sort our tickets out for the overnight sleeper bus from Margao near Colva. I stayed in Colva for nearly a week enjoying great sea food dishes and smoothies, the temperature was a guaranteed 25 C and the sun always shining... :-) I enjoyed the Joyce and the little rascals !!! they're pictured in the Hampi photos...
The over night bus to Hampi was a crazy journey...the driver who only stopped for half an hour on the 10 hour trip...speeded along at a speed impossible to sleep and as a result I became ill... we arrived in Hampi jet lagged and found it to be different from Goa...mainly because of the scenery...no beaches...huge boulders of various shapes and sizes and the Virupaksha temple in the center of the town, which gave the place a magical feel...however as I was beginning to discover the rickshaw drivers were more abundant than ever and the constant hassling to buy things was draining for me...
The videos below show the 'best of' Hampi and once again thanks to Randal for his great company.
